10 VDI Mistakes to Avoid

Managing VDI? Thinking about getting started with it? A software company has compiled a list of the Top 10 problems to avoid.

Virtual desktop infrastructure is by now a proven technology that has been implemented on millions of desktops, in every industry and around the world. But there are some VDI implementations that don't live up to expectations.

Now, a software company has compiled a list of the Top 10 reasons a VDI implementation might fail -- and how you can fix it in case it does.

The list is courtesy of Axonic, known for its Lookeen desktop search product. A sample entry: "You didn't include employees in the transition." One solution: "Include representatives from different departments and give them a sense of ownership of the process."

Other possible speed bumps: "You assumed all your employees interacted the same way with VDI," "You didn't take adequate security precautions," and "You left too many of your applications out of virtualization."

The list is presented as an easy-to-digest, one-page infographic. It's clearly worth downloading if you're planning a VDI implementation, or even if you've already completed one -- just to make sure you did it right.

Learn how the combination of HP ConvergedSystem graphics server blades and NVIDIA GRID virtual graphics technology can provide the richest visual experience at the right cost, for even the most demanding applications:
